This is an historical romance set in San Francisco. It involves a strong woman, a troubled teenager and a doctor with a conscience. You might also enjoy the historical information about San Francisco.

An easy read. Period romance taking place in San Francisco in the late 1800s.....A gifted but troubled physician, Blue Calhoun runs a thriving medical practice from his Nob Hill mansion in San Francisco while raising his son alone after an unthinkable tragedy. Then one day a female fugitive with a gunshot wound appears in Blue's surgery. Even though she holds a pistol aimed at his heart, the desperation in her eyes awakens Blue's compassion. Reluctantly he is drawn to her fragile beauty, her nerves of steel and the mystery surrounding her circumstances.

This was a nice change of pace, engagingly written.

I've been reading Wiggs' books in order and find that each book inproves in structure, plot, etc. This book is no exception and I really appreciate seeing familiar names from past books in each new book. It is good that each books stands on its own, however, and reading the books prior to the one being read is not necessary.
